Yes, @HH. How would you think that would impact on supply chain?

@Hailey: Good suggestion but don't you think it's a bit hard to do. How can you force someone to use a product which they bought for a longer period of time? Alternative would be not to release a new version until a certain period of time.

@@_hm: I don't think there will be any issue for the EU countries to adopt the technology. There are always possibility for universal chargers and adapters.

@_HM, to your first question, i think we need to get people thinking about sustainability and using and having products longer. The gotta upgrade to each new iteration of the cell phone isn't good for the world.

@Wale, the telecom market will never move fast enough for the end user. At the same time, charging has got to be the biggest headache in the cellular phone market today. That means that charging and battery life are going to be the battlefields that this war will be fought upon.

On the face of it, this seems like a good idea. In addition to reducing waste, it would provide a convenience to consumers.

Telecom governance an important area that needs to evolve with new innovations. Especially, regulation and policy that would have a great impact on subscribers of telecom services. Having said that, recycling of electronic gadgets seems a very tedium and strenous, even despite governments intervention schemes in a few nations. However, with pervasiveness of mobile phones on the increase, governments need to come up with an alternative strategies. But one charging connector? Waiting to see how the major mobile phone manufacturers get along with it.

(1) As Apple will provide state of the art charging connector for world and old laggard technology for EU. Will other mobile manufacturer also do similar thing and make EU backward looking? My logic is people change mobile phone so often and are not much concerend about waste, what do they care about one small charger?

(2) Secondly, what are options for EU customer? Order iPhone from outside to get good connector. Micro USB connector for charging is not very rugged connector. Apple lightening connector and new connectors are.

How EU will enforce this with EU customers?

(3) What about option of wireless charging? Has EU address that too?
